Helichrysum essential oil has a lovely rich, sweet, sort of earthy aroma. It's steam distilled from the flowering plant and the oil can be applied neat (without any carrier oils). The helichrysum plant is unique in that it continually repairs/rejuvenates itself. If you cut it, it keeps growing. The oil of the plant coagulates and stops the 'death' of the plant.
Usage + Recipes
Helichrysum is great for skin (I use it daily in a glowy-skin serum/oil thing I made - recipe below). It helps even out skin tone, diminishes blemishes, and moisturizes. It also supports healthy circulation and proper liver function. It can help calm nervous or anxious energy, give clarity and help ground you, and can help with focus and concentration (uh, YES PLEASE).
- Glowy Skin
- Fill 1 oz. dropper bottle 2/3 way full with jojoba and vitamin E oil and add:
- 5-10 drops of Frankincense, 10-15 drops each of Lemon, Tea Tree, and Purification
- If you're a rock climber, you can make your own Crimp Oil which includes Helichrysum (and a whole lot of other oils)
